  23. I’ve been geocaching only once. I just had my baby boy and we strolled alot so I borrowed my borther’s GPS and we tried it in our area. We found a box where you take a keychain and leave on in exchange. It was pretty fun.

  24. No our family has never done it but we would love to try.

  25. I haven’t, but now that my kids are older it sure sounds like fun!

  26. I live for random adventures, and I would like to share this love with my child. What better way to do that than with a set of coordinates from a geocache adventure!?!?! I haven’t tried it yet, we think we stumbled upon a cache once but weren’t actively participating.

  27. My dad and step-mom geocache all the time. I went with them on a cache hunt once when I was 7 months pregnant. It was quite interesting. They have even done hunts during the night using reflectors in the trees and get a whole bunch of geocaching enthusiasts together to do it. They have a blast. I would love to win one of these so we can go out searching for caches ourselves.

  28. haven’t tried yet but sounds like fun with the kids!
